This lecture won’t take place until February 28, 2024 and these tickets are for the in person event, that said, here’s more from the February 9, 2024 notice (received via email),
Why We have not discovered Dark Matter: A Theorist’s apology
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28  at 7:00 pm ET
Astronomical evidence suggests the galaxy is filled with dark matter, which we know little about and expect to be distinct from ordinary matter. Despite 30 years of research, we haven’t found a connection between dark matter and fundamental physics. Dark matter is incredibly elusive despite heroic experimental efforts.
On February 28 , University of California Riverside faculty member Flip Tanedo will discuss how we got things so wrong, why we can be optimistic about the future, and what it means to “do physics” on something where the only thing we really know is that it probably exists.
Don’t miss out! Free tickets to attend this event in person will become available on Monday, February 12 , at 9 am ET.
If you didn’t get tickets for the lecture, not to worry – you can always catch the livestream on our website or watch it on YouTube after the fact.
I’ve got more about Flip (Philip) Tanedo, from the event registration page,
Flip Tanedo, University of California Riverside
Flip Tanedo spends his time thinking about dark matter. He grew up in Los Angeles and fell in love with physics after reading The Physics of Star Trek. This carried into degrees in mathematics and physics at Stanford, Cambridge, Durham, and a Ph.D at Cornell. After a postdoc at UC Irvine, he is currently faculty at UC Riverside where he is often covered in a layer of chalk dust.
Reminder for those of us on the West Coast, subtract three hours from the time listed, i.e., 9 am at the Perimeter Institute is 6 am PT.
